The 18th annual Aspen Ideas Festival returns to the Aspen Meadows June 25–July 1 for an in-person convening. Nestled in the Rocky Mountains, guests will reunite—in open-air tents and venues that bring the outside in—for stimulating and invigorating conversations with some of the brightest, most interesting thinkers and doers. Leaders from around the globe and across many disciplines will engage in deep and inquisitive discussion of the ideas and issues that shape our lives and challenge our times.

The Festival will focus on six substantive themes that speak to this unique moment in history. HeatPowerConnectionTrustMoney, and Beauty will guide conversations among thinkers, writers, artists, policymakers, business leaders, educators, and other visionaries from around the globe. Read more about the 2022 Program Tracks.
